Whilst the ways in which we interact are in perpetual evolution, the need to communicate remains constant, not least of all in situations where peoples' stability is troubled, their peace is compromised and their security is in peril. On a broader scale, governments and relief organisations recognise the role of communications in prevention, information & coordination and community development.

Be it on remote islands, in the aridity of desert or at the heart of conflict zones, we respond to humanitarian issues by bringing together technology and communications. We leverage the advantages of modern innovation and focus on the capacity that communications and new technology have to empower individuals and communities:

Giving families a voice

Hearing your loved ones' voice when you are at your most vulnerable represents considerable psychological relief. Beyond informing them of your condition, we consider that a simple telephone call establishes a sense of reassurance, allowing people to make informed decisions and assess the choices they make.

Internet as communications catalyst

Social networks, instant messaging - more and more people turn towards internet to communicate and access information. We strive to facilitate access to evolving methods of communication to empower populations by helping them regain an element of control over their choices, influencing both individual and collective decision-making.

Governments & Relief organisations

ICT paves the way for the humanitarian response community. With more and more response agencies and mechanisms relying on ICT, technological means and know-how form the backbone of an effective response, increasing their self-sufficiency and ability to prepare for future crises.

Development

Disparity in access to ICT can impede growth of isolated communities. We help drive the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly for those living in remote areas, by using technology to help communities be active in improving their own living conditions and accessing quality education.

This approach sees us harness existing tools and apply them to the ever evolving humanitarian context. The fleet of tools that exist on the market can be adapted and tweaked by our team who is constantly looking to ensure that all bases are covered for the needs on the ground. The scope of our work covers several sectors, and we believe that the responsible use of technology can have a positive impact not only within the framework of a given project, but also directly on the identified populations. This kind of project requires a combination of skills that bring together NGOs from specific domains.

Finally, in order to ensure the best long-term impact amongst beneficiaries, it is essential that responsible use of technology respond to sustainability challenges such as culture, finance and knowledge.
